What to Wear for Engagement Photos


Wondering what to wear for your engagement photos? You’re not alone. We get that questions a lot from our couples and we’ve put together a few tips to help take some stress off. Couples spend plenty of time planning the looks that will show up on everything from their Save-The-Dates to the walls of their house.

1. Wear clothes that make you feel like yourself

Now’s not the time to pull out a fancy ball gown if you’re a T-shirt and jeans kind of girl. You want to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. If your wardrobe is uncomfortable, you are going to look uncomfortable in the photos. You should still look like yourself, but at your best. So if you are that T-shirt and jeans kinda gal, go with that. If you love getting dressed to the nines, break out that glimmery ball gown.

2. Choose a color scheme

While bright colors may seem like a good choice because your eyes are drawn to them, you may not want your dress or shirt to be first thing people see when they look at your engagement photos.

So consider wearing pastels, cool hues, or neutral tones, then add a pop of bright color with your accessories or shoes. When deciding how you and your partner will dress, look for complementary colors and solid prints.

You want to try to stay away from anything too busy or mixing patters like plaid and stripes. If you are planning for multiple outfits for your photoshoot, keep the color scheme in mind throughout the entire session.

3. Stick with two outfits

Although we may all love the trends, you don’t want to fall victim to treating your engagement session as a fashion photo shoot. Just think about all those couples in the mid-’90s who took their engagement photos in white t-shirts and blue jeans. Learn from them, don’t be them. Two outfits is more than enough to reflect your personality, and it insures you won’t spend your entire engagement session in a rush to change into the next set of clothes.

4. Embrace layers and accessories

One quick and simple way to give yourself multiple looks without having to completely change clothes (super helpful when their aren’t restrooms nearby) is to incorporate layering into your wardrobe. Layers like a chunky sweater, denim jacket, or a large scarf, can also double as a fun prop for later on in the shoot?

Plus if gives you a little something to do with your hands. Even though I’ll coach you on what to do with your hands, having a jacket or chunky necklace can make you feel a little more comfortable.

5. Dress for your surroundings

Similarly to wanting your wardrobe to compliment your personalities, you want to choose a location that does the same thing. If you both grew up on the ranch and love everything hay bales + open fields, you probably shouldn’t choose a downtown engagement. 

And if your engagement photos are being shot on the beach, you’ll look out of place in a little black dress and stilettos, unless that juxtaposition is what you’re going for. Again, this comes back to who you are as a couple.

6. Ask your photographer for help

I’m here for you. I’ve done a lot of these engagement sessions, and odds are this is one of the first times you’re stepping in front of a camera. And I am constantly scouting for new locations and unique ideas for engagement shoots.

Even if you’re in another state or another country, I can plan the perfect engagement session location with the help of my handy Google Earth. Thanks Google. A few things to think about are locations that you as a couple frequently visit.

Coffee shops, bars, parks, the zoo. Think about places that might mean something to your relationship, like your first date, or proposal location.

I’m not a ton of help when it comes to fashion, but here is a great article that outlines which colors go well with different seasons of the year.
